Art Nouveau Collection
The inspiration for this collection comes from the highly ornate illustrations of Alphonse Mucha who was working in the period that spanned the early 1890s right up to the First World War. Its influence can be found in painting, sculpture, jewellery, metalwork, glass and ceramics. The drawings of Aubrey Beardsley, the architecture of Victor Horta and Paul Hankar and the poster designs of Alphonse Mucha are some of the most familiar examples of the Art Nouveau style.
